Social media, digital presence and hen harriers

Posted by LibeRaCe on August 27, 2015

Who I am in my personal life informs who am in my professional life, and that will be true for most people. This is often expressed in my work life by hearing colleagues tell me about what their kids are doing at school with the curriculum or technology. Personal informs “professional” and vice versa. Now, with social media, we get to choose how we express and how much we express about these facets of our lives. For me, I have chosen not to keep separate accounts, after all I am the same person whether I am running a workshop on digital leadership or a hiding under a bush photographing a rare bird or trying to identify a warbler.

Information literacy is for life, not just for a good degree | CILIP

Posted by LibeRaCe on June 19, 2014

Source: www.cilip.org.uk

"More recently this focus has widened to examine transition from school and Further Education (FE) into University, recognizing universities’ increasingly high expectations of new undergraduates information literacies. This widening of focus is also starting to bring workplace information literacy under the spotlight. It’s an exciting time for this area of research, as theory and practice can be seen to start to reflect the Alexandria Proclamation assertion that “Information Literacy lies at the core of lifelong learning. It empowers people in all walks of life to seek, evaluate, use and create information effectively to achieve their personal, social, occupational and educational goals.” – See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/cilip/news/information-literacy-life-not-just-good-degree#sthash.rI2UoTAV.dpuf

See on Scoop.itFE and HE IL Champions

Collaborative Approaches to Information Literacy
This event aims to give participants an opportunity to learn from the good practice of the presenters who have innovated and developed their practice by working collaboratively.
The speakers for the event include staff from different HE and FE institutions who will discuss how they have collaborated with different professionals, both across their institutions, and externally.
As a result of attending this event participants will have a greater understanding of how to develop integrated approaches to information and digital literacy practice. There will be a focus on how collaborative practice can raise the profile of IL beyond the library and enable services to work more efficiently with stronger outcomes. Attendees will learn practical ways to share information and knowledge beyond immediate teams, and how to build relationships to make better use of existing resources and aid skill development.
